EndNote is a software program that helps you store and manage citation information for the resources that you find in the course of your research, including books, journal articles, and other materials.

You can either enter citation information by hand or automatically import it from most research databases. You can then use EndNote to generate bibliographies and insert citations directly into Microsoft Word documents, using the citation style of your choice (MLA, APA, Chicago, and many others).
